Sucktown, Alaska

Freshman year, Eddie Ashford had it all. Friends, parties, Taco Bell. He enjoyed it, reveled in it even. And he flunked out. Now he wants to redeem himself. Has to. He takes a job in tiny Kusko, Alaska, and promises to stay a year. His intentions are pure, but soon he’s lonely, low on cash, and desperate to escape the tundra. In this rough, raw, harrowing, and hilarious story, Eddie’s life becomes a dogsled ride along a line between youth and experience, bravery and recklessness, right and wrong. It’s tough going, and Eddie is alone at the helm for the first time.
